My goal as a photographer is
to work with you to create a pictorial story of your wedding
day, which is totally unique to you.
Attractive, strong and vibrant portraits
of the people making up your day alongside artistic detail
images of the surroundings and elements all contribute to
the story. I love everything about weddings but by getting
to know you, and your family and friends, means I can tell
the correct story in the first place.
How did you get into photography?
One of my earliest memories is being amazed by my grandparents’
new Polaroid camera but I didn’t really start taking
photos properly until university where I had access to a darkroom.
After graduation my job as a graphic designer meant that I
got to go on photoshoots and shadow professional photographers
until I started to take over!
How long have you been photographing
I shot my first wedding back in 2004 and it was for my then
boss. I only agreed to do it as it was in Scotland and he
agreed to pay for my travel and give me an extra day off so
that I could explore Edinburgh Castle. I loved the whole experience
and weddings have become my life ever since.
What’s the best thing about
Weddings are never boring – no matter how many I go
to. I love meeting so many people, the challenge of trying
something different for every couple, getting the best from
venues and even working in all weather conditions! I’ve
learnt to lace up dresses, tie cravats and I know how to pin
buttonholes so no one gets stabbed. It’s all part of
What should a couple be looking
for in a wedding photographer?
I think it’s really important that you get on with your
photographer. They’ll be around for hours and if you
can relax with them then you won’t feel like you’ve
been trailed by the paparazzi all day. Also don’t be
afraid to tell them what type and style of photos you are
looking for, as they should be able to tailor their style
to your requests.
What makes you different from
Weddings are my life and I'm totally dedicated to making sure
your day gets captured in a way you'll look back at and smile.
One of the main differences is that I often stay until well
into the evening (not just until the first dance) and I provide
a proof book for you to flick through all the finished images
and show friends and family.
